Booth vs Bust
Posted 11 March 2013 - 12:22 PM
Was is the key word, since he's not the same player he was when he was here. He had issues in here the year we traded him, and those issues continued in Florida, and are still continuing in Detroit. He's played 3 games this year. Big picture indeed.
By "was" I meant when he was here.
As for Booth, if someone could just get him to use all that strength and energy to the benefit of his line mates he would be a real star for us..............Unfortunately he seems too set in his ways and always reverts to type.
His style of driving to the net is next to useless. We hardly ever get a return. If he would only drop or make a pass occasionally we might get some return. He seems to think he's the Lone Ranger............maybe alright for Florida but not for this team.

Trevor Linden Quote Nov. 29th 2012 [Asked if he would return to the game?]
"The game has been with me for a long time, if the right opportunity came about, you never know"
"You don't know this, but Trevor Linden had cracked ribs and torn rib cartilage for the last four games of the 1994 Stanley Cup Final," Cliff Ronning said. "You can't imagine what it's like to hear your captain, in a room down the hall, screaming at the top of his lungs as they injected the needle into his rib cage. Knowing him, he probably thought we couldn't hear. He would then walk into our dressing room like nothing had happened. That was inspirational."
